Life happened and I abandoned this site. I got pregnant with my first daughter and was so exhausted during the pregnancy that I could barely form sentences. I promised I would write after she was born. Then she was born and, of course, it is hard to write when you don’t get any sleep so I swore I would write again soon.
I got pregnant with my second daughter and, with a toddler in tow, was even more exhausted than the first time around. The thought of trying to write after she was born was laughable. As a full-time working mom there was no hope of that. Maybe when they got older.
Then our new house was handed over, a brand new peaceful place to call home. Not. The quality of the house was not even close to what we were expecting and we spent the next year and a half tearing it apart and putting it back together again, while living in it with two toddlers. Needless to say, writing was not a priority.
Today I am blessed with a fabulous husband, two gorgeous, clever girls, 2 and 4, who can have real conversations with us and a beautiful home in Dubai that no longer requires daily intervention.
We are currently on vacation in Oman and as I watch my girls playing together in the sand, I realize they are growing up too quickly. I always envisioned this site as a collection of memories and stories about our adventures that I could one day share with them.
I better get back to it.
